Recently acquired from a grand country estate this is a fabulous 1952 First Edition copy of this bird study, in very good condition throughout, benefiting from its original dust cover. At the time of publication Charles Tunnicliffe was regarded as one of Britain’s foremost artist-naturalists. Not only illustrated but also written by Tunnicliffe based on his close understanding of the subject and his personal connection with Anglesey. So much more than a diary, this is an outpouring of love for his art and his passion for capturing wildlife through art. The colour-plates are simply stunning, the perfect gift for ornithologists, naturalists and anyone interested in illustration of nature and birds. Art fit for the Royal Academy London. 160 insightful pages, highly recommended.
